About the Author

Ned Rozell has walked, skied, driven, and flown across Alaska, and he's lived there more than half his life, so it must be home. He's written more than 700 weekly newspaper columns about natural history and science, and has written 80 more for "Alaska Magazine." He has three Alaska-related books and counting; "Walking My Dog, Jane," is about that hike across Alaska with a dog that won't come along again. His latest work is "Alaska Tracks; Footprints in the Big Country from Ambler to Attu."
Harmon "Bud" Helmericks was an Arctic explorer, Bush pilot, and author best known for writing "The Last of the Bush Pilots." As one of Alaska's most famous Bush pilots, Bud holds the Award of Merit, Territory of Alaska, for "Special Service in the Arctic Regions." He couldn't tell you exactly how many Alaska flight hours he had, because he tired of adding up his flight hours after logging more than 27,000. He crossed thousands of miles of mostly uninhabited wilderness in small Cessnas on wheels, skis, or pontoons. Bud is coauthor and author of several books that are now deemed collectible, among them "We Live in the Arctic, We Live in Alaska, The Flight of the Arctic Tern, "and "The Last of the Bush Pilots."


"An absolutely stunning view of Alaska, as seen by various skilled, artistic photographers who followed many bush planes to places seldom visited by humans, to capture glorious images of small--and not so small--aircraft stitching Alaska together."
